It’s early June and time for an overview of what’s happening in the garden. We’ll start at the front with Bed 1 and make our way back. You can click on any photo to view a larger version.
Bed 1 has my potatoes, Romanze red-skinned, and Adirondack Blue. The Romanze have been hilled up twice (left). The Adirondack Blue had to be re-seeded because they rotted and are just sprouting(right).
Bed 2 has carrots and beets at the near end. The carrots need to be re-seeded because the slugs have eaten all the sprouts.
The cold frame has glass removed (we actually broke the remaining two windows) and has lettuce, and hopefully some bread poppies sprouting in the third empty space.
Tomatillos have little fruit set as well. The artichokes (above) have sent out much larger leaves.
Bed 6 has the growing garlic (no scapes yet), as well as more potatoes and some bolting bok choy and mustard greens.
These potatoes are French Fingerling and Irish cobbler and are almost ready to bloom.
The rest of the garden update will come tomorrow in Part 2.
